The 2002 Bavarian Cup was the fifth edition of this competition which was started in 1998. It ended with the FC Bayern Munich II winning the competition. Together with the finalist, Jahn Regensburg, both clubs were qualified for the DFB Cup 2002-03.

The competition is open to all senior men's football teams playing within the Bavarian football league system and the Bavarian clubs in the Regionalliga Süd (III).

Rules & History[edit]

The seven Bezirke in Bavaria each play their own cup competition which in turn used to function as a qualifying to the German Cup (DFB-Pokal). Since 1998 these seven cup-winners plus the losing finalist of the region that won the previous event advance to the newly introduced Bavarian Cup, the Toto-Pokal. The two finalists of this competition advance to the German Cup. Bavarian clubs which play in the first or second Bundesliga are not permitted to take part in the event, their reserve teams however can.[1] The seven regional cup winners plus the finalist from last season's winners region are qualified for the first round.
